bill clinton came in and said we are way too left and have to moderate our positions and that is where the democratic leadership council came in. there are a lot of democrats that were very upset with bill clinton during the late '80s and early '90s. they obviously won the white house back in 1992 because they nominated a moderate to center democrat that could win independents and women and people of color and so forth? >> there is an article that the tea party is over. that obviously is the right of the right fringe element of the republican party. very hard line. they certainly had a bigger voice when more of those supported members were elected to congress in 2010, but is that accurate? do you think the tea party is over for extreme conservea tichl? >> time will tell. clearly last tuesday voters didn't express happiness or support for the tea party very clearly. the question will be whether the republican party tries to move as jonathan just described, kind of moderates their message or still beholden to that kind of extreme part of the party? we're starting to see a few dfrs say we
of our collective deliberations. as bill clinton might say, it's just arithmetic. in fact, this situation of a divided government has only two possible outcomes -- action based upon good faith compromise or no action resulting from political dead lock, and in my position, the latter, is not acceptable to the people of maine and to the people of the united states. we must find a way to act, because many of the problems before us, the debt and deficit is probably the best example, have a time fuse. the longer we avoid acting, the worse they get. in this case, no decision is itself a decision, and it is almost undoubtedly the wrong decision. the challenges before us are too great and the stakes are too high to allow partisan differents to keep us from finding common ground even on the most difficult issues, and i hope that in a small way, in a small way i may be able to act as a brim between the parties, an on -- bridge between the parties, an honest broker to help nudge us toward solutions. i talked to more than a dozen senators of both parties in the past three days and have been impressed
since the '30s. >> we were tying it all the way remember with bill clinton, becky, bill clinton realizes no matter what happens the next four years will be good, housing recovers, so if he doesn't make sure the president's reelected then hillary can't run in 2016 because romney would be an eight-year president. whoever is there is going to get credit for it. steve, are we guaranteed the next four years as housing recovers no matter what policies we pursue it's going to be 3% or 4% growth? >> sadly no. in 2008 before we had the financial panic in september and depressed housing markets like phoenix, las vegas and a couple other areas we started to see signs of life again so if you get government out of the way, housing would recover far more quickly and let the markets clear, recover far more quickly. the key thing you got to have stable money, don't pile on new taxes and don't pile on all of the new regulations that are coming. those are crushers. >> i want to know whether reinhardt-rogoff was right. if we stay slow for four years it was more than the financial crisis, that washington po
the obama administration, i would appoint bill clinton as a middle east peace envoy. he has credibility both on the israeli street and in the arab world with the camp david accord s and with the clinton global initiative. we, as americans, the united nations has to get involved. we have to send a message to both israel and palestine that there's absolutely no military violence solution to the israeli/palestinian conflict. it can only be a peaceful and political one. >>> today's talk back question, should [ male announcer ] with 160 more miles per tank, the distances aren't getting shorter. ♪ the trucks are going farther. the new 2013 ram 1500. ♪ with the best-in-class fuel economy. engineered to move heaven and earth. ♪ guts. glory. ram. . >>> now is your chance to talk back on one of the big stories of the day. the question for you this morning, should politicians have a mandatory retirement age? it was a simple question, if you're 27. or maybe those over 50 are way too sensitive. nbc's fresh face luke russert shouted out a question at nancy pelosi's presser and was soundly booed over
. it is import how we get into the deficit situation. many viewers will remember when bill clinton left office this country had a surplus. we went to war in iran and afghanistan. bush and others decided not to pay for the war. that adds to the deficit. if you give a huge tax breaks, that adds to the deficit. if there is a recession, less revenue is coming in to the government. revenue is the lowest in six years. that is how we are where we are. we have to do this in a way that is fair, not on the backs of people that are working 60 or 70 hours a week and not on the backs of children by cutting their health insurance program and not on the backs of senior citizens. the struggle is to understand how we got to where we are and how do we go forward in reducing the deficit and creating jobs in this country. host: it was announced that there will be a caucus with the democrats. we see this headline in "the boston globe." what advice did you have for this fellow independent? guest: we have spoken a couple of times recently. essentially what he asked me about it is what is a like to function within th

-times" washington bureau chief, lynn sweet. bill, we'll start with you, you heard senator mccain, if hillary clinton leads the state department do you think that susan rice has a better chance at the job, especially after we heard on friday from senators conrad and feinstein, saying that rice was really only saying what she was told she could say from the c.i.a.? >> that's right. she appears to have followed talking points from the c.i.a., which were wrong. the talking points said that what happened in libya, that terrible tragedy was a spontaneous protest, hked by extremists. the problem was the information was incorrect. it was actually a premeditated terrorist attack. as the c.i.a. now acknowledges. that's an issue, it should be debated and fully discussed. i don't know that it is so terribly disqualifying, the way senators mccain and graham have made it out to be. as to say this woman is not qualified to be secretary of state. that's a very different issue. >> lynn, what do you think? you wrote about the issue and you say that the president, the roots go very deep with rice here. the commitment
